In this video, New Age/Occult expert Johanna Michaelsen talks about the many deceptive practices that have crept into the church which are actually rooted in the occult. She also addresses the dangers and unbiblical nature of ‘Christianizating’ occult practices such as Yoga and others, referring to Deuteronomy 18, where God forbids the Israelites from picking up the practices of the pagan nations they were going to conquer. This was recorded in 2008 but is as relevant today as it ever was.
When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.
There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.
Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee. – Deuteronomy 18:9-12King James Version (KJV)
